People get more connected and technology becomes part of our daily life. Between 2014 and 2015 there was a 27% growth of internet traffic in Amsterdam. Eleven out of fifteen Trans-Atlantic data cables are connected with or go through Amsterdam and the AMS-IX is the second largest internet exchange point in the world. In 2016 Amsterdam was ranked second in the European Digital City Index. Do you work on a smarter city? Share your technologies here!
Hi everyone! I looking for a developer that could build an application for residents of a housing complex in Amsterdam. If you have experience with that please contact me! Thanks!
At Oddity.ai, we make video surveillance smart by recognizing violence, real-time. When violence occurs under the eye of the camera, an alert to the surveillance staff is being sent, so they can act accordingly. In the contemporary camera surveillance environment, a LOT is being missed, which we counter by applying our smart deep-learning algorithm.
We have demonstrated the effectiveness of our solution during a pilot in Eindhoven (Living Lab Stratumseind). Currently, we are still monitoring that location, with great results. We also accurately detected several fights which were missed by the surveillance staff (!)
When implemented, fights can be deescalated in an early stage, and perhaps even prevented.
We are now searching for a customer (police/municipality/Living Lab/etc.) that implements our solution in the surveillance room. It is already market-ready and privacy-compliant.
Oddity.ai is a university spinoff (Utrecht University) with three co-founders and two employees. We are based in Utrecht, but flexible to implement anywhere in The Netherlands. Please contact me (Thomas Alflen, co-founder and director of Oddity.ai) if you would like to know more!
I am Benjamin, master’s graduated in Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics at VU Amsterdam. I am interested in smart city projects, related to energy, mobility and city development.
I have knowledge in data analysis and environmental & urban economics as I’ve worked in related projects in Chile, such as the implementation of the first 100 electric public transport buses in Latin-America and the renovation of abandoned public spaces in Santiago. Also, I am currently working part-time as a researcher in a project called Leave Fossil Fuels Underground at UvA.
I am looking for a part time position related with these topics, if you are interested please don't hesitate to contact me.

instagrid - we are a start-up with new technology for the world's most advanced battery-driven portable power supply. Our products can replace mobile diesel generators, that are still largely used on construction sites, reducing local emissions to zero and improving the air quality in the city. We would like Amsterdam to be one of the pioneering cities to test and implement this new technology.
We, Marketplace.city, have partners looking for innovative smart building and smart lighting solutions for a new build construction on multiple buildings in a multi-use facility.
The development will include 700 multifamily units, 370k sq-ft in office space, 100k sq-ft of flexible space, over 300 hotel rooms and 1600 parking space across 30 acres. The project is located in the United States.
Do you have these solutions ready? Find more information and register your interest at https://marketplace.city/cities/public-private-partnership.
Marketplace.city helps governments find, evaluate and buy technology. We connect companies to opportunities with our partners as they arise.
Will you join us in the 5G Challenge?
The future mobile 5G network is more than a faster version of the usual 3G and 4G wireless technologies. In addition to improved bandwidth, 5G has a lower latency (the delay in communication between devices), better security options and more powerful antenna concepts and a much higher capacity. Where 4G connected for people, 5G will connect society.
Will you join us in the challenge?
You are a start-up with the skills to connect society. We - the Johan Cruijff Arena, City of Amsterdam, Capgemini/Sogeti and KPN - challenge you to design and pitch a compelling service/application for consumers using 5G capabilities.

Google, ML6 and SensorTeam are joining forces and are looking for your help
We have started a proof of concept to recognize sound by expanding our cutting edge wireless sensor-technology with AI based audio analysis models from ML6.
SensorTeam’s IoT SoundSensor™ is an extremely accurate and cheap sound sensor which is solar powered, LoRaWAN compliant and LTE-M ready. This plug-and-play outdoor sensor runs autonomously anywhere in the world.
Sound recognition from regular ambient noise can be interesting for many reasons:
- Smart maintenance and Industry application
- Social noise disturbances from festivals, events or terrasses
- Public safety: gunshots, explosives, angry crowds
- Noise impact of airplanes, trains or highways
- Indoor noise solutions (office, security)
- Your idea here ;)
Interested in our technology or a mutually beneficial collaboration with Google/ML6 and SensorTeam? Do you have a relevant use case for our technology? Please contact us by sending an email to email@example.com.
In the last couple of years, there were plenty of inspiring local initiatives measuring and sensing issues, such as air quality, water quality and amounts of people. What were the results of these experiments and projects?
